GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) - State District Judge Julie Macek has announced her retirement due to health reasons.

The Great Falls Tribune reports (https://gftrib.com/1PzKNlk ) that Macek announced Wednesday she will step down Feb. 29.

According to court documents filed in connection to a personal injury lawsuit, Macek slipped and fell on wet tile in the lobby of a Billings hotel in 2013, resulting in serious injuries.

Macek took office in 2001 after defeating Judge Marge Johnson. Before taking the bench, Macek was chief deputy Cascade County attorney.

The Montana Supreme Court Judicial Nomination Commission has begun the process of replacing Macek. The appointment will be made no later than March 30.
